Hiked Archer on Sunday May 20 with my daughter. We finally found the right trail from the meadow. There is now a rock cairn that I don’t remember seeing before, indicating the faint trail off to the right.The trail down to the footbridge is in good shape and the bridge is easily doable. The climb up has some nice view points and is not difficult to navigate. Someone had done some recent grading and repair on the trail. Thank you, whoever you are! We also passed some small waterfalls The issues start after the 4 way trail intersection. The road leading left or right does not seem to have an easily follow able path. The trail up is very overgrown but still discernable until you get closer to the top. Then you are left looking for the orange ribbon markers. We headed to the southeastern spur. As we approached we saw some of the fire damage. The steep and narrow trail leading to the spur is very tenuous with the soil no longer having some of the rocks, roots and brush to hold it in place. I recommend not attempting this approach. Hiked back down and completed in about 3 hours. There were 2 other cars at the trailhead when we finished.
